Former FBI Director Comey to Dems: ‘Don’t Lose Your Minds and Rush to the Socialist Left’

Former FBI Director James Comey urged Democrats on Sunday to avoid moving too far to the left as it would probably benefit Trump and the GOP.

“Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left. This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership,” Comey tweeted.

Comey’s tweet refers to the battle raging within the Democratic Party as to its future which became more pronounced after self-described democratic socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in a primary last month.

Ocasio-Cortez has struggled to explain the difference between socialism and democratic socialism and said that “Capitalism has not always existed in the world, and it will not always exist in the world.”

Last week Comey urged the public to vote for Democrats in the fall citing what he said was the failure of the GOP to fulfill the Founder’s design that “Ambition must…counteract ambition.”
